Am I the only one who hated Brucie? Sure he was comic Relief, but he...I dunno, it does not seem worth it for me. Just a SPOILER

Just a Chopper? Cmon man, At least you can give me a free fast car or something

Jacob, I admit, has some pretty hard delivery missions. But was well worth it for those "About-to-throw-my-controller-at-the-wall" missions.

Finally beat 100% though...Now what?

SPOILER

That is another thing I hated about GTA, beat it 100% and you can only go postal on people. I wish you can AT LEAST do Taxi Missions to get a little sum of money or SOMETHING. Throw me a bone here!

I got Walk Free after going on the runways at the Airport. I didn't know I would get 4 Stars like that, so I raced out of there. I managed to get away with some super-slick driving.

And yeah, Brucie rocks. He's so over the top. I love stealing cars for him. Way better than Jacob's delivery missions, damn you get little time for those.

Police side missions are cool, I just gotta get all the Most Wanted since I've already "Cleaned the Mean Streets".

I just found a really really easy way to do One Man Army (that I did on a friend's Xbox so he got the 40G, heh). When you still haven't unlocked the middle island, break through the cop barrier then proceed to the bridge. Jump down the middle of the bridge onto the tracks. Then go into the subway tunnels. They cannot get to you. Easy peasy, and you get to explore the underground systems. There's bums in there!

Hah, that's exactly how I got that too (also Walk Free). I submitted that to GameFAQ's as a secret (I mean with some of the stuff they have sometimes, why not), but I guess they didn't approve.

The second island is really "pretty" but, kind of simplistic I'd say. And holy DAMN are some of the smaller streets in the south terribly annoying (I've been doing the police side missions a lot lately, really annoying stuff in that area).

Hmm, did you get one of the safehouses on that island yet? The one with the laptop, it's on the right side of the middle island. Behind that building is a car dealership (guess you could say that) that's always full of Turismo's. Probably my favorite car in the game. , so easy to steal them from there! Excellent for racing "PUNISH THOSE BITHCES" as Brucie might say.
(one of the best characters ever? lol)

Also, I tried out multiplayer today and wow, I totally suck or something. , though the games seemed pretty laggy.

Journey = Epic.

Also like JNR, Liberty Rock, The Vibe (sometimes), Fusion (sometimes), and LCHC (sometimes).

I am joining the Bandwagon, Guys, what is your favorite Radio Station on GTA4?

Before I start, What the hell happend to Maurice Chaves? He was that Love Expert that was Introduced on GTA3, his shows were absolutely hilarious! Even his voice was...Oh man, I was hoping to hear him in GTA4, but instead got that San Andreas Rock Radio Host in his "Interactive" radio Station.

Anyways, my personal favorite Station isnt anything Rock...Instead, Its San Juan!



My favorite song in the entire game!

Edit- I blame my Mexican for the fact that he got me hooked on this kinda music.

Oh yeah. Little John is a rapper or something. I heard his name earlier today and mixed them up. XD

But yeah, Jacob.

Trying to get Little John to get 75% like with me, but for such a easygoing guy he sure is hard to befriend.

Hmm, typo on your part now ... did you mean "Little Jacob"?
(the rasta brethan mah'no? heh, he's pretty cool).

Nagis: Yeah, that is a little overdone now. I didn't really notice it that much myself but, least it's not Halo 3.
(sometimes it looked like there were lens flares all over the levels)

The only thing I do not like about the Graphics is that God-Damn overused "Bloom" that many developers think are cool.

No, they are not. Thank God the developers of Home scrapped it. It looks like every light particle reflects even a Black piece of paper. Christ that annoys me.

The driving is indeed different than before, I'd say it feels pretty realistic. So you definitely have to know how to manage the gas, breaks, etc instead of just flooring it the whole time. Overall though I'd say all of the controls took awhile to get used too for me (maybe because it's the 360 verison and I was used to the PS controller?). Though, it had been really long since I played a 3rd person game.

(I've beaten it, some thoughts)

Overall, the game does in fact not offer as much gameplay or features that San Andreas had, or even Vice City. It's a little more limited. One thing myself and a ton of people missed were customizing cars. And it's pretty disappointing that there's only four clothes shops in the whole game. I also kind of missed not owning places, like businesses and getting money from them overtime.

Regardless of being more limited than the previous games, what Rockstar really succeeded at doing here was making a very interesting main character (Niko) and a really great storyline with a huge memorable cast of characters. Seriously, if they made a movie based off this game, it'd probably be pretty damn good. By the end of the game, you will have gone through just about every emotion you could think of with Niko. He was really a likeable and remorable character, unlike the previous GTA games.

On top of that they really made an awesome game here graphically, which wasn't something you could really say about the previous games which some would make fun of for looking "cartoony". This is just one of those games you really have to see with your own eyes. The middle city based off of New York's Time Square is truly amazing to see. In fact, let me just stop talking: Side by side comparisons of New York - Liberty City.

So yeah, while the game is a bit simpler than the others, the plot and characters are far more engaging and the engine is just great. There's also DLC coming up of course then after that, I can only imagine the next GTA games will be really insane now that they've got the engine built and everything.

The only thing I did not feel comfortable with is the Driving, but you can find my Review Here if you want to read one from a Gamer's point of view.

The Driving in this game takes a little getting used to. But feels worth it in the end.

I played it... I've only gotten fun out of it when I had a crap load of money, could buy as much RPG ammo as possible and blew the shit out of everything.

It didn't seem anything special to me, and controlling the character and the camera felt awkward.

That, and who could forget about good Old Uncle Jack Thompson?



Personally, I think the game is great. Xbox or PS3. They are both remotely the same. Storyline is Vastly improved from its predecessors, and its just down right fun to play.

I have not cheated in this game as of yet, and I don't plan on doing it till 100% completion. Which is going to be nearly impossible at the moment thanks to Rockstar's Servers being out of wack.

Apparently MADD's already pissed because you can drive drunk in the game: http://games.slashdot.org/article.pl?sid=08/05/01/147224&from=rss

IGN put up a video of things that you can do in the game.

And to think, people were pissed about Hot Coffee, which was considered a secret.

My friend was telling me how it wasn't actually hooking him. He'd waited for it for a while, but he's saying that it's no where near as good as originally made out to be.

And if it still doesn't hook him by Thursday, he's letting me borrow it.

It's insane. I remember when I first started at GameStop. Last March, the GTA IV was scheduled to come out around that time. Then it just kept getting pushed back. And it figures. I have to miss out on our midnight release because I have a final the next morning. Midnight releases are awesome, by the way.

I'm not too thrilled about the GTA games. My own neighborhood inspired the games practically...so its nothing new to me. Ask Xeios. They should definitely make a GTA:Kensington City Stories XDXD

But naturally, Ima cave and at least give the game a shot. It's a first on the next gen consoles, and I heard the online play is going to be kickass.
